Riding the Gold Wave: How U.S. Money Reserve Can Help You Navigate Volatility and Build a Stronger Portfolio
If you’ve watched the news recently, you know that the world’s current economic and political environment is anything but stable. Geopolitical crises, bank failures, and inflation have caused unending volatility in financial markets. This has left many Americans scratching their heads about how to stabilize their finances and protect their futures.
Contrary to what some believe, strengthening your portfolio isn’t about predicting and avoiding market fluctuations. Even the biggest Wall Street banks can’t do that. Diversifying your portfolio, however, may be the key to mitigating risk and protecting your wealth from unavoidable market conditions.
Gold has long been considered a safe haven during times of economic uncertainty, making it an attractive choice for diversification. U.S. Money Reserve, America’s Gold Authority®, is one of the nation’s leading distributors of physical gold and other precious metals. As the only precious metals company led by a former Director of the U.S. Mint, the company also serves as a knowledge base for those who wish to learn more about diversifying their savings and retirement.
For over 20 years, U.S. Money Reserve has been dedicated to helping Americans navigate market instability and build personalized diversification strategies. With the help of a U.S. Money Reserve Account Executive, you can become empowered to protect your wealth—and maybe even grow it—in today’s turbulent economy.
Gold: A Strong Choice in Volatile Times
Over the course of the past two decades, gold has performed well during periods of economic turbulence. For example, gold surged during the Great Recession in 2008 and again during the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In today’s bumpy economy, gold may offer similar benefits by acting as a hedge against inflation. Inflation is one of the biggest concerns of everyday Americans, and it’s one of the greatest threats to independent wealth. As inflation erodes the dollar, gold prices typically rise.
This is what analysts are seeing in the market today. In the wake of the recent spike in inflation, gold has surged. As of the writing of this article in mid-May 2023, the price of gold has reached as high as $2,055.70 per ounce in the past few weeks. That’s less than $17 shy of gold’s all-time high.
In March 2023, the Federal Reserve suggested that it may halt further interest rate hikes, which are intended to curb inflation. In response, financial analysts have predicted that gold may climb as high as $2,600/oz. in the coming months—a price increase of about 26% from its recent high.
U.S. Money Reserve’s Approach to Adding Gold to Your Portfolio
U.S. Money Reserve makes it easy to add gold to your portfolio. As a leading distributor of precious metals products, the company offers a diverse selection of government-issued gold products such as bars, bullion, and certified coins. Government-minted precious metals are backed for their metal content, weight, and purity.
Buying gold and enhancing your portfolio’s protection is as simple as calling U.S. Money Reserve.
But access to high-quality gold products isn’t everything. U.S. Money Reserve also prioritizes education and long-term strategy. Gold buyers may be more likely to achieve success when combining informed diversification strategies with U.S. Money Reserve’s personalized support. To help clients understand their financial needs, the company provides numerous educational resources, all of which are completely free. U.S. Money Reserve also maintains a team of knowledgeable Account Executives who work with clients over the long term, helping provide the guidance they need to become confident gold buyers.
U.S. Money Reserve’s dedication to building long-term relationships has contributed to its reputation for trustworthiness and reliability in the gold industry. Having served over 700,000 clients, U.S. Money Reserve is proud to be one of America’s leading precious metals distributors.
Types of Gold Products and How to Choose the Right One
Clients have several options when buying gold from U.S. Money Reserve. Physical gold can be held in the form of bullion coins, proof coins, and bars, either delivered securely to your door or stored within a gold or precious metals IRA. Each option has its advantages.
Gold bars and coins are physical gold offerings that you can hold in your hand, store in a safe, or pass down to future generations. Physical gold can also be liquidated for cash at any time.
If you like the idea of having complete control over your assets, direct ownership of physical gold may be the right choice for you. Another advantage of physical gold is that it can’t be hacked or manipulated digitally.
A gold IRA (also known as a self-directed precious metals IRA) is a tax-advantaged retirement account backed partially or entirely by physical precious metals (as opposed to stocks and bonds). As with any IRA, you cannot personally store the contents of your gold IRA, nor can you withdraw them without penalty prior to a certain age. However, if you’re looking for a way to protect your retirement savings from market volatility, a gold IRA may be a solid choice for you.
Opening or transferring existing retirement funds to a gold IRA lets you diversify your savings and limit your overall risk exposure. Having a gold IRA also offers significant profit potential over time, especially as inflation continues to rise.
Manage Market Volatility With a Strong Portfolio
The economy has suffered two major recessions in the past 15 years, and there’s no reason to believe stability is on the horizon. According to a February 2023 survey by the National Association for Business Economics, 58% of economists expect a recession in 2023.
No one has the power to avoid market uncertainty, but you can limit your exposure to it by diversifying your portfolio. Gold has historically performed well in times of economic turbulence, experiencing surges during both of the recessions mentioned above. For this reason, many believe that now is the time to buy gold. This is evidenced by the fact that gold is in high demand among both individual buyers and central banks.
U.S. Money Reserve’s customer-focused approach to gold buying empowers clients with the knowledge and resources they need to navigate market volatility and build a resilient portfolio. By incorporating gold into your strategy, you may be able to do more than just protect your wealth. If analysts’ predictions are correct, you have the potential to ride the coming gold wave and enjoy significant gains.
